The Macra Terror (Doctor Who Series 4 Story 7)

We are all happy to work. We are all happy to work. For the good of the Colony. Happy to work. Happy to work.

One mans quest to destroy his love of Doctor Who continues with The Macra Terror.

I really can’t bring myself to say much about this one, I found it tedious and drawn out with an obvious enemy and solution. Question such as “how the Macra survived before the colony” and “Why have they surfaced anyway?” spring to mind. The story is rather shallow and lifeless and really did very little to grip me, couple this with the truly dreadful quality of my reconstruction and you have a very hard story to like. I would go so far as to say that this is the first Troughton I would say I actively disliked. Disappointing.

Coming up The Faceless Ones… things can only get better.
